A cast member of Bravo TV’s show Summer House says he feels ‘betrayed’ by a gay member of the show. Carl Radke, 32, is upset Stephen McGee, 27, revealed a private conversation the two men had a few months previously.
McGee claims that Radke, a dental sales manager, confided in him that ‘the best head you ever got was from a guy.’ The revelation came at the end of Monday night’s episode.
Summer House, which is now in its second season, follows a group of nine friends sharing a summer house in Montauk, Long Island, NY.
‘I am a straight man. I’m very confident in my sexuality’
Following the episode, Radke appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to clarify his sexual identify and how he responded to the comments.
‘I could tell you this, Andy, I am a straight man. I’m very confident in my sexuality. Stephen is actually one of my first gay friends. I told him something. Yeah, I didn’t really know how to communicate it to him, but I made more of a joke than I should have.
‘But I told him very private information about something that happened to me when I was 22.
‘It took me 10 years to actually come to grips to share it with someone. I shared it with one of my gay friends, and somehow that got permeated into other people finding out, and here I am having a conversation about it.’
Radke has had an on-off relationship with a female member of the cast, Lauren Wirkus. He also confirmed rumors to Andy Cohen that he had recently been briefly involved with Vanderpump Rules’ star Scheana Marie. But it was the revelation from McGee that was most on his mind.
‘Honestly, I felt like he betrayed my trust … But I’m a straight guy, I’m very confident in myself, and unfortunately crazy shit happens to guys sometimes.’
He said the fall out from the revelation will be covered in the next episode of the show.
